I've been baking fish like this for years. Even with a little butter, it's relatively low fat, especially if you use non fat mayo. The mayo mixture is also quite nice as a dipping sauce for artichokes. Also, any white fish can be substituted. And if you have some herbs on hand, add them either to the dipping sauce or the mayo mixture.

Wonderful! I cooked it for 25 minutes as "duo_mom" suggested. However, I used finely chopped onions (didn't have any shallots), used 1/3 cup bottled lemon juice (didn't have a fresh lemon) and it turned out terrific! This recipe is going to be a standard for my house! Thanks!
